Venus Williams told her fans how to deal with difficult times

On an Instagram Story, Venus Williams told her fans how to get past difficult times successfully.

"What's the alternative? Get negative and give up? Lay down? Lie on the ground? Ground's dirty. Get walked on? NO. You keep fighting. Champions keep going until they get it right. And that is a quote from Billie Jean King," Venus said.

Williams was eliminated in the first round of Wimbledon by Elina Svitolina. In the post-match press conference, Venus tried to explain her loss. "I'm not sure what happened. I'll have to check. I felt pain and it was difficult to concentrate on the match.

The grass is always slippery. It was just bad luck. I started perfectly, then I was killed by the grass.I felt in great shape, but that's the sport. Now I have to figure out what my next plans are. I'm a bit in shock right now. I just can't believe this happened.

It's bizarre. I do not know. I still have to elaborate. I've had so many injuries, so it's not easy to process what happened.This is not what I want for myself. I didn't do anything wrong, I just tried to hit the ball. Emotionally it's really hard. I never thought about retiring before the end: I tried to fight and looked for another way to win."
